General Guidelines for Tutoring
Plan Ahead: Make an appointment in advance of an assignment due date. Do not wait until the last minute.
Clarify Expectations: If you have questions about the assignment or the instructor’s comments, ask your instructor to clarify before you work with a tutor.
Be Specific: What do you want to work on? “Everything” is not a valid response to this question. We cannot work on every aspect of an assignment in one sitting.
Arrive Prepared: We are not a substitute for attending class. Attempt the homework on your own before seeking tutorial assistance.
Make Homework a Habit: Many subjects take practice, repetition, and patience. Set realistic goals and expectations for yourself.
Notes about English Tutoring: We will not accept drop-offs - revision is a process for which you should be present. Sessions are limited to 30 minutes per day.
Notes about Mathematics Tutoring: You will often have to share a tutor with other students. Please do not interrupt another student’s session, not even for a “quick” question. Students who need help with math courses should:
- Read the chapter and review course notes before seeking help.
- Attempt to complete the homework on their own.
- Arrive with specific questions about the homework.
